and talk about how genius it is. it's like, you know, it's just -- it's a cliche on top of a cliche crowned with a cliche. i mean, what am i supposed to say? where should i begin? bipartisanship, okay. the book it's based on, doris kearns goodwin's "team of rivals." >> i know what you think of that book. people point out the parallels between president clinton and our current president. here is a question. what lesson would you like the current president to take from the true lincoln in your view? >> well, look, lincoln did a lot more of the success in abolishing slavery if we're going to talk about the great triumph of the lincoln years, winning the civil war, abolishing slavery, 90% of that was idealism, not compromise. the movie shows us the compromise. i'm from kansas. we fought a war with missouri over slavery, but it was against compromise, that border war. this had been going on for decades and decades. if you ask me, barack obama's great failures are his zeal to compromise. he's always looking for a grand bargain. this is why he wasn't able to defeat conservatives when they were tot

: on the one hand, you have two cliches. one is, seeing is believing. and in this case, i don't think seeing is believing, if she's guilty of this brutal murder. i mean, just look at her. appearances can be deceiving, maybe that's the other cliche. when the prosecution rested in the capital murder trial of jodi arias, the defense argued that her life should be spared and it shouldn't be murder 1 wrap because the state had failed to prove premeditation. the prosecutor scoffed at that notion, pointing out that among other things, the defendant -- that pretty -- you know, sweet-looking, young lady there brought a gun and a knife to the poor man, travis alexander -- the victim's home. but what i don't understand was why she killed him so savagely. what the hell was going on in her mind, 27 knife wounds, slit throat, gunshot to the head and all the rest of it. she looks so innocent. >> like i said, appearances, obviously deceiving. what was it about jodi? what did my next guest see in her that is so disturbed them that they wanted them out of their home. jacob and holly medford are here. it wasn'

. not going to use that cliche, not going to say it that's because it was a fake crisis as the "wall street journal" says today in its lead editorial. the deal congress struck last night could have been done last august. but the politicians in both parties wanted to posture it. setting up phony scenarios for their own personal enaggrandizement. here is really what's going on. president obama has succeeded in raising taxes on every working american. every one of us. those who are doing well will now pay close to 50% income to the feds. those making below $400,000 a year will pay a variety of new obama care taxes and see a 2 percentage point rise in their social security payment. everybody gets hit. if you invest, you will be paying about 9 percentage points more in capital gains and tax. if you die and your estate is worth more than 5 million bucks you will pay 40% of death tax to the feds. president obama is not finished. he wants more from the affluent. >> we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. cutting spending has to go hand in hand with further reforms to our tax code. so that the we

cliff. i got so tired. i'm calling it the budgetary butte, with your permission. it became so cliche into that final quarter of the year and you saw the market largely shrugged it off. >> brown: a butte is more picturesque than the cliff, but go ahead. yes. >> yes, indeed. so i feel that investors at least are not bothered about this. they see this as a game of chicken going up and down pennsylvania between the white house and congress. and much of this has been kicked down the road effectively for a couple of months. we do know that we have an unsustainable budget deficit situation but on the flip side you have economists like paul krugman out there saying do not worry about the budget deficit, this is not the time to be slashing public spending. as you saw that actually helped push that economy into decline in the final quarter. that was a big variable in that. so this is a huge debate. but on balance what you're seeing is a lot of the unexpected has surprised the positive. you mentioned housing, housing is not just virtuous in that it helps homeowners and construction workers out

alabama, wind, rain and more misery. what you're looking at there is a building that's almost cliche to say but that building was perfectly fine. the one next to where we're standing was a rental, apparently nobody was in there so nobody injured or killed here, but it is always amazing to see these things, how it skips from one and misses another. >> miguel marquez for us this morning. it is always amazing how a swath is just shredded and then homes stand right nearby. thanks, miguel. appreciate the update. let's get right to our meteorologist, indra petersons. let's look at the forecast, is it moving out? >> for the most part it's just left in the northeast. the story today really isn't about that severe line of storms but rather all that cold air behind it that was the troublemaker in the first place. i want to give you an idea how strange this weather was in the first place. monday, 48 degrees. look at chicago, 48 degrees. by tuesday it got up to 63. yesterday severe weather, 44 degrees. currently now down to 17 with a chance of snow showers in the forecast. so, yes, very wacky we

. speaker, some might say that saying those things is a cliche. but as we all know, members are going to have to engage with and rigorous debate, and there it is going to be the clash of ideas, a rigorous debate, but it needs to be done with good faith and the spirit of compromise. i realize and some argue that compromise is a sign of weakness. in fact, one of the great strengths, mr. speaker, of our nation's founders, was their ability to compromise. the very structure of this institution, the united states congress, the very structure of our institution, which joined the people's house, where we are all privileged to serve, with the united states senate, was known as what? the connecticut compromise, or the great compromise. that is the very basis of our founders. too often we forget that while we should never, we should never compromise our principles, we must always, mr. speaker, we must always be prepared to compromise in the service of our principles. a couple weeks ago, "the economist" described another example of compromise -- this one that justice brandeis described as "one o
